Good Location, Good Price

This was our second stay at this hotel. The grounds are beautiful and pool inviting. Staff still considerate and professional. Although the location is leaning towards a "not-so-nice" area, it was far... more

Hello Valued Guest, Thank you for your great review! Our entire team strives to provide great service along with clean, well maintained rooms and your comments motivate us to keep up the good work. Our guests love relaxing in our lush pool area. We are sorry that we don't have a hot tub. Unfortunately, there are no plans to install one but, guests do enjoy the heated pool most of the year. Our typical continental breakfast has a variety of pastries from a local bakery, steel cut oats with toppings, freshly baked waffles, scrambled eggs with either sausage or potatoes, yogurt, fresh fruit, lots of coffee, tea and juices. We also have a gluten free item available and dairy free milk, upon request. Unfortunately, during this pandemic that the world is experiencing, our breakfast room must remain closed. But, until we are able to reopen it, we do have a few snacks available at the front desk for our guests each morning. We are glad to see that you were satisfied with your accommodations. The family suites are spacious and functional, having 2 queen sized beds in the bedroom, which is separated by a door from the living room area which has a sofa bed and the studio sized kitchen with apartment sized appliances. They are definitely great for longer stays. Thank you so much for sharing your experience here on TripAdvisor with our potential guests! We hope to serve you again if you are ever back in the area! Yours in Hospitality, Michelle C. Front Office Manager
